Leslie Blumgart

Dr. Leslie Harold Blumgart, MD

SurgeryOther Specialty

OVERVIEW

I am a surgeon with extensive experience in hepatobiliary disease, particularly in patients with liver, bile duct, gall bladder, and pancreatic cancer. I also have a special expertise in biliary tract reconstruction. There are some 20 surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists working in the Hepatobiliary Disease Management Program. We all work closely as a team and meet frequently to determine the most appropriate treatment for each patient, review research, and organize the team to achieve the best possible care for patients. Over the years, my clinical and research work has contributed to the understanding and management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and especially of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. My research has included studies on the surgical management of tumors of the gall bladder, bile ducts, and liver as well as the control of blood loss during major operations and the assessment of risk factors in patients undergoing major liver and biliary operations. I have lectured extensively both in the United States and internationally and have published the leading international text on hepatobiliary surgery, which is now in its fourth edition.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
